Assamu Alaikum to all,

I've been on this site for a few months, but have posted only twice, since I am mostly to scared and not knowledgable enough to write. I must thank Islamfajr and Mabsoot who have been very generous with their time and very helpful. :)

I've been very interested in Islam, and lately, have felt more of a "push" to do something. So I am trying to learn to pray, even though I don't read Arabic.

My idea is to memorize the prayers (in transliteration given on this wonderful site and in English). Do you think this is a good idea? Thanks for all of your replies!


Servant of Allah
yes that would be a good idea. but also try to learn it in arabic inshallah. but take things step by step. don't rush. and welcome to the site. peace.


Subhana Allah!
asalamu alaykum

Hi boot...

I would advise you to keep your prayers, and/or to pray regularly, however you currently do so. Though some may disagree with me on the particulars, I believe that the most important thing to do is to communicate, pray, meditate with God - Allah - and to do so seeking guidance. Ask that He expand your knowledge, preserve your faith, and guide you rightly. Reference al-Fatiha - the opening of the Qur'an... let it be your mantra, as it were.

I believe that you will be guided rightly.

Cheers, brother.
